Pseudonym of UK soldier and author Ernest Graham Hamilton (1882-1950), in active service during World War One; along with some nonfiction, he published two books of sf interest. The Defence of Bowler Bridge: A Study in Minor Tactics (1929 chap) describes in detail a battle in which Britain defends Ruritania (see Ruritania) from its enemies. The Battle of Dora (1931) is a Future War tale on Battle of Dorking lines, with a focus on the tactics of armoured warfare. Ruritanian Jugurthia, hapless because it has been ruled by "pacifists and communists", accepts the aid of Anglia (Britain) to fend off Invasion from Martia (ie Germany). [LaP/JC]
